some tidbits of Marushka trivia

Marushka - two birds (tan)
  • Founded in 1970 by Richard Sweet and Victor and Mary Krawczyk.
  • Based in Grand Haven, Michigan
  • Initial projects included silkscreened office partitions
  • In Marushka’s heyday in the early 1980s, they had five retail outlets owned by the company, including locations in Michigan and Florida
  • In the late 1980s, creator Richard Sweet apparently developed a silkscreen line of framed prints varnished (so they could be wiped clean) (will have to look for these)
  • Even during Marushka’s prime, prints were all hand-screened
